What is time consuming, is that every insert statement has to be prepared.
It should only take you a few minutes to write a program that creates and
prepares one insert statement with parameters, reads the input file one
record at a time, sets the parameters and executes the DSQL. If done
correctly (avoiding ParamByName), this should increase your speed to
several thousand inserts a second.
